Regular Maintenance

Frequent vacuuming removes soil particles from the surface before they work their way below the pile surface. It is recommended to vacuum at least once a week and more for a heavy traffic area. It is recommended to use either upright vacuums or quality barrel vacuums with adjustable brush heads.

Extra care must be taken in heavy traffic areas, including entrance areas.

Loop pile carpets

If you have a loop pile carpet, we recommend the use of an adjustable regular-suction type vacuum cleaner. Turbo or power brush head attachments may reduce surface fuzziness or crimping - however excessive use can lead to fuzzing. Power bar and rotating brushes should only be used on the lightest settings. Some vacuum cleaners available in the market can damage the yarn bundle and cause fuzziness across the carpet surface due to their coarse bristles.

We highly recommend before vacuuming your newly installed carpet, that you vacuum an offcut piece of carpet to insure your current vacuum cleaner will not agitate the loops of the fibres and cause unnecessary fuzziness.

Cut Pile and Cut & Loop carpets

You can use an adjustable regular-suction, turbo or a power brush head for your cut pile or cut and loop carpet; however excessive use of rotating brush head may disturb the overall appearance of your carpet. We recommend using an adjustable regular suction head and occasionally vacuuming with your turbo or power brush head.

Periodic Maintenance

However meticulously both regular and interim maintenance are carried out, the time will come when the carpeting will require a thorough, deep or restorative cleaning. Carpet should be steam-cleaned at a minimum of once every two years. Steam cleaning should be carried out by a reputable professional steam cleaner and in accordance with the Australian and New Zealand carpet cleaning and maintenance standard AS/NZS3733-1995.

For Synthetic Carpets

Regular maintenance

Correct and regular maintenance will increase the life span of a carpet and also help maintain its good appearance. Cleaning should be proportional to the amount of soiling the carpet is subject to – the more dirt is deposited on the carpet, the more intensive the maintenance program required.

Spot Cleaning Procedures

Immediately remove as much of the spill as possible. To remove stains it is generally best to use general carpet cleaning liquids designed specifically for spot cleaning. The recurrence of stains after spot cleaning is not uncommon for a concentrated spill, so a repeat treatment is necessary. Never rub or scrub the carpet as it may cause fuzzing or change the appearance of the carpet. Always work from the outside of the stain towards the middle.

Always work from the outside of the stain towards the middle to avoid further spreading. It is recommended to pre-test any cleaning agents on a small obscured area of your carpet to ensure they do not affect the appearance or colour of the carpet.

It is most important to rinse the cleaned area thoroughly with water and blot dry after removing any spills. If the cleaned area is not sufficiently rinsed, a sticky detergent residue remains which attracts soiling.

Dry Stains

Gently remove as much of the substance as possible using a small soft hand brush or spatula to break up any crusted material and then vacuum thoroughly.

Wet Stains

Rinse the cleaned area thoroughly with clear cold water after each cleaning step and blot dry.
